So very many. I stopped counting after 250. All friends, colleagues, acquaintances at support groups and closest friends. All gone , but not forgotten.
Last month, my best friend's partner passed away from HIV complications. He wouldn't take any meds, ended up in long term care with AIDS related dementia and quietly passed on. So, it's still out there and people are still dying ; just not in the huge numbers at the height of the epidemic.
I remember all those passing like it was yesterday, even though it was 20-30 years ago.
The grief is still there, I just no longer dwell on it as I once did, when AIDS was consuming my life.
